A Winter Hike at Sackville Lakes

Until last fall I hadn't thought of Sackville as a place to enjoy a bit of nature. That was before I discovered Sackville Lakes Provincial Park.

This past summer, the province of Nova Scotia designated the 292 hectare site along First and Second Lake in Lower Sackville as Sackville Lakes Provincial Park. The media buzz around this designation had me itching to lace up my hikers and check it out.

After enjoying a few summer and fall hikes throughout 2013, I knew it would make a wonderful spot for a winter hike.

The trails here are wide and are under a canopy of trees. As I enjoyed a winter hike through these trails, I felt as though I was truly in a winter wonderland.

It was the first school in-service day of the year and my son Jaden and daughter Lienna welcomed the leisurely start to their day off. They were content watching some morning television so I decided to enjoy my coffee by the computer to explore the feasibility of a little adventure that I had in mind.

Take a Right at Lunenburg to Gaff Point

I was researching for a coastal hike, I stumbled upon this place called Gaff Point. There was some recent trail building work and a surge from hiking & outdoor groups were planning outings. This sudden interest deserved a more detailed visit with my hiking buddy - Keji the Black Lab.

Getting there was fairly easy, just head for UNESCO old town of Lunenburg, but hang a right and continue along route 332, a few kilometers past another place of interest: Ovens Natural Park.

We like to hike Cape Split at least once a year, and the last few times we have made sure we take friends who have never hiked it before.

Oysters & Quahogs - A Tasteful Adventure

OysterQuahogSign.jpg My morning drive through the Wentworth Valley enroute to Malagash was nothing short of stunning. The fall colours were still in their prime and I counted four white tail deer in fields along the way. I was heading to Bay Enterprises where I was about to learn about the wonderful world of oysters and quahogs.
